Delicious Sausage, Peppers and Potatoes Recipe

(Editor’s Note: Like I mentioned yesterday, this is a re-post.)

This simple and delicious recipe is a re-working of the recipe that that my mother-in-law gave me when Michael and I were married. It is so good, and so simple to make.

Sausage, Peppers and Potatoes


(Not the greatest picture, I know, but it gives you the idea of what it looks like.)


Approx. 2 lbs Italian sausage, cut into medium sized pieces

2 green bell peppers, sliced (I often substitute red or orange bell peppers for added color/taste.)

2 onions, sliced

3-4 potatoes, peeled and quartered

2-3 granny-smith apples, peeled, cored and cut in chunks (optional)

garlic powder, oregano and basil to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss the sausage, peppers, onions and potatoes in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Drizzle with some olive oil and sprinkle to taste with the seasonings. Bake for 1 – 1 1/2 hours, turning occasionally so sausage browns on all sides.

If desired, toss in the cut-up apples 20-30 minutes prior to the end of the cooking time. (The apples add a bit of sweetness to the dish, so I almost always add them.) ***You want the apples to be heated through and soft, but have some texture, so don’t put them in too early or they will disintegrate. (Trust me, I learned this the hard way!)

My family loves this recipe! With some crusty bread and/or salad, you have a complete and filling meal. My son devours this whenever I make and, as a matter of fact, will request it if I don’t make it for a while!

(P.S. Because there are only three of us, I usually cut the recipe in half, unless I want leftovers. The picture shows the halved recipe.)

    That’s great! Let me know what you think when you try it. 🙂

  3. Looks yummy! I do a similar stove top version. Just thinly slice each ingredient and cook in some olive oil. Stirring frequently. Thanks for sharing in our Recipe Swap!

  6. I did a little research on Mario Escobar. From what I can tell, he is Spain’s answer to Dan Brown. He’s written fiction involving the Church and professes to be a “historian.” Clearly he has an axe to grind with the Church.

  7. Whoops. The above comment belongs on your book review post. Can you move it? Sorry.

      No problem, Barb. I tried to move it but couldn’t figure it out. I’ll have to do a little digging….

      Anyway, I wish I had known that about him before reading the book or I wouldn’t have picked the book out to read. 🙁

  8. Hi Carol,

    I’m making this recipe tonight. I put a zucchini from our garden in along with green pepper and a couple of yellow sweet banana peppers. I have fresh basil and oregano from the garden also, so I used my little cuisinart to chop up the leaves and put them in fresh. The grocery didn’t have the cased Italian sausage so I just put 2 pounds of ground Italian sausage in it. Right now everything smells great. I’ll freeze some leftovers for future enjoyment.

      You version looks just as yummy! The zucchini would make a nice touch to add to this recipe for sure. And there is nothing like fresh veggies from the garden!
